    POWER-CON! Programming Schedule & guest appearances, ticket & exhibitor sales & more!

    Power-Con*, the first annual MOTU and POP fan convention in the US, is coming!
    Tentatively scheduled for fall of this year, Power-Con is working with He-Man.org to help provide the best fan experience possible.

    Power-Con wants to know what you'd like to see at a MOTU and POP fan convention!
    Please post your feedback in this thread.

    We'll be posting more information as it develops!



    *This convention is not sponsored by, or affiliated with Mattel, Inc. or Classic Media, Inc.

    ----------
    UPDATE 1:

    As far as location, I can tell you now it will most likely be NY or CA. Those states have the highest concentration of fans who visit this site, as well as the highest concentration of talent involved in MOTU and POP both past and present, so please don't suggest locations. Any posts doing so will be edited or deleted.
    I'll let you know when I hear more and can post the info.

    As far as exclusives, I wouldn't count on any toy exclusives.
    Though nothing is being ruled out as this stage.
    Just know that this is a fan convention, that will no doubt start out modest in size, with a focus on fans, special guests and vendors,
    just like with other fan conventions in the past (Bot-Con, My Little Pony Fair, Jem Con, etc)

    Please suggest things you'd like to see at the con itself. That's what the Power-Con team would love to hear about. Thanks!

    Now this might make up for me missing out on SDCC tickets, looks like my US road trip might happen this year after all.

    In terms of what I'd like to see, would be great if the 4HM could be there and bring the 200x 2ups like they recently did at Toypocalypse.
    I know a exclusive figure or comic is probably out of the question but how about an t-shirt and exclusive poster by Emiliano?

    Well now I don't feel as bad about missing SDCC. Some exclusive reveals and maybe figures would be cool. I think it should be in Dallas but thats just me being greedy

    This is a great event. It need their own Exclusive figure in the same way Orko was. A special feature for the figure and a Mattycollector release for the event.

    My suggestion -

    Spirit of He-Ro (Glow in the Dark - PowerCon Exclusive)
    Spirit of He-Ro (Translucent - MattyRelease)
    TOP 20 MOTUC ITEMS WISHLIST
    -SONGSTER -KARG -CALIX -SCROLLOS -SAGITAR -CLAWDEEN -GRANITA
    -QUEEN ANDREENO -CERATOS -KULATAK ELDER
    -BIONATOPS -TURBODACTYL -TYRANTISAURUS -BATTLERAPTOR
    -METEORBS -ORACLE -QUEEN VEENA -GRAY -ODIPHUS -MONSTROID

    2015 NA SUB (EXCLUSIVE: Darius)
    -Weaponstronic, Tuskador, Kayo, Lizorr, Staghorn, Hoove

    Interesting.

    Please make the Power-Con exclusives available to the He-Man.org community directly after the convention.

    I vote for Buffalo, NY. Everyone can go see Niagara Falls, it's close to Canada (two hours from Toronto) so it can be a North American con instead of a "US" con, and Mattel has a presence here (Fisher Price is located in its suburbs), so maybe if you held a con here they'd be more likely to step in and do something for it.

    Just a thought. Also I live here. :-D Rooting for the home town like everyone.

    I'm gonna use my massive powers of thought and reasoning and guess that it's going to be somewhere near where Val lives (Kentucky) since I'll be he's going to be doing the lion's share of the prep and planning.

    Oh how I wish this would be somwhere in MO, AR, OK, or TX though so I could find a way to go.

    Since the question has been officially asked "what I'd like to so in a MOTU & POP fan convention, I will officially answer...

    I'd like for the con to be closer to where I live so that I could attend.

    Oh yeah! Bring it home to the "Dirty South" I'd have said Atlanta but that was before attending Atlanta Wizard-Con back in December. Not as big of a turn out as I would have thought. Never been to Dragon*Con so I'm not sure of the turn out then.
